April Diva Dare - Day 12

Hi Verve fans!  I'm here wrapping up this month's Diva Dare mash-up of Charmaine and Marisa.  If you haven't played along you still have until Wednesday, May 1 to join in the fun for a chance to win some new Verve!  I'll add the linky form to the bottom of this post so it will be easy to find when you come back to link up. {grin}  And don't forget there's a comment prize picked from all the comments along the Diva Dare blog posts!  You can find links to each post in the series over on the sidebar. -->

For my little homage to Charmaine, I picked an embossing folder (which I'm pretty sure Charmaine has enabled me to buy every single one in my collection!) and a clean fun layout, with lots of white space and contrasting bold colors.  For Marisa, I went with a butterfly die, some super flowery paper, a fun little bow and an angled square because she's learning to embrace tilted panels so well!  {grin}.

The butterfly was the start to my card, stamping the butterfly from So Fluttery in gumball green and cutting out with the Flutterby Die.  I've been on a washi kick lately, so I adhered a fun colorful bity of it to a patterned paper square, doodled a little frame around it and stamped the hello sentiment from Remember This directly on the tape in archival ink.  The ribbon is from SU! and I added a button, twine and a fun little stick pin for embellishment.  Liquid pearls and some rhinestones finish my accents and the card base is embossed in chevron for just a hint of texture.

All of the stamps and dies I've used on today's card are on sale!  If you haven't seen it, be sure to check out the April SALE going on at Verve through the end of this month!  There's a whole bunch of stamps & dies marked 10 - 30% off!
